With the nick-breaking technology Marbach has brought to the market – already in autumn 2016 – a solution that optimizes the blanking of very small blanks with a double knife. Since then, many customers have employed this new Marbach technology.
In nick-breaking tools, the punches in the male blanker are replaced by special pins. These are positioned in such a way that the nicks can be separated specifically and in a controlled manner. So the ups fall down vertically without twisting or tilting.
Head of Business development at Marbach, Jan Brunner: “Special application scenarios during die-cutting very small blanks with double knife have sometimes caused problems in the past. During the last months customers with such jobs have used the new nick-breaking technology. The results achieved have been positive overall. The customers are well satisfied. They report a significant reduction of machine stops – even with higher speeds. The blanks can be separated and stacked safely. The productivity increases significantly.”
Due to excellent results, Marbach will now offer its new technology to customers as a standard solution for small blanks with double knife.

Already in 2012, the Heilbronn-based die-maker Marbach had established a location in the USA with its subsidiary in Charlotte, North Carolina. This company has been constantly growing and has in the meantime established itself in the American market. For this reason, Jan Brunner, CEO Marbach America, was invited to the Heilbronn House of Commerce on the 8th March as an expert at the themed evening "Germany - USA: Relationship wise". This event, organized by the German Graduate School of Management & Law (GGS), the Kreissparkasse Heilbronn and the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Heilbronn-Franken, was about the economic and political situation in the USA and the relationship between the USA and Germany. But also about how this has changed - especially over the past year.
